At Newbury Primary School the focus of Mathematics sessions is to explicitly teach and extend students’ mathematical skills. We foster positive attitudes towards Mathematics, providing opportunities for students to review their learning, experience success and to embrace challenges. We focus on developing students’ ability to use Mathematical processes and to apply them to real-life contexts.

The Mathematics curriculum is organised into 6 strands:

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Measurement
  • Space
  • Statistics
  • Probability (Year 3 onwards)


Teachers use formative and summative assessments to plan for and implement engaging and targeted learning experiences for students to participate in. Students build on their skills and understandings through fluency tasks and whole class instruction. Teachers differentiate independent tasks and provide explicit teaching to small, focus groups. Student engagement is enhanced using digital technologies, real-life problem solving, open-ended tasks, games and hands-on learning.
